Her she is, a very basic coat of paint on her and the base. Lots of work still to do. I scrapped the tall conifer on the base as I didn't think it was in-keeping with PS tradition. I've kept the stump and I'll be happy with the bleak bare rock and roots. Its very Ray Harryhausen which is what I wanted. No drool just teeth and a barely visible tongue. Very happy with the subtle brow horns and missing the articulation ridges. I'd like to think its just different enough but keeping the spirit of the original. Many thanks to Kurt for the inspiration. Mobing that jaw was more difficult than I thought.

Many thanks both. I like the building bit, to me that's the fun. Its the painting I struggle with. Making up my mind is always difficult. But this time I'll use the suggestion on the box, hows that for a real change! Green with a bit of yellow. I've got four 'fangs' in the loft I can do a fancy one another day.

I ended up simplifying the base by removing the proposed giant conifer. I kept the tree palm stump I modelled in putty. I think I did a decent job on that It more exotic and in keeping with the original bases. After all I wasn't trying to create a museum quality model, just a fun one. I also cut the polystyrene block of the base down by an inch with a bread knife as it was too tall and distracted from the model. Nearly there.
